FAIRFIELD — A state parolee was caught Saturday in Vallejo hours after he allegedly attacked a woman and her young son, killing the woman and seriously injuring the boy.

Police received a call at 1:52 a.m. reporting an assault on the 2000 block of Marin Street in Vallejo, according to a press release. Officers arrived there and found that several people inside a home were victims of an assault.

A 5-year-old boy and his 40-year-old mother had been violently attacked. The boy was taken to a Bay Area trauma center and was stabilized. Police said Saturday that he was expected to survive. The mother died while on the way to the trauma center. Her name was not released, pending family notification.

Patrol officers and detectives identified 43-year-old Daryl Wakefield, of Vallejo, as the suspect in the case. They also confirmed that Wakefield knew the homicide victim. An officer saw Wakefield shortly after 8:40 a.m. on a street in east Vallejo and took him into custody without incident.

Police said Wakefield has an extensive, violent criminal history and is currently on state parole for a burglary conviction. He faces allegations of murder and attempted murder in connection with Saturday’s attacks, police said.

    I think that there's still a chance or two to rehabilitate this man. Let's not give up on him yet, and I will gladly invite him into my neighborhood if it helps him.

    I agree. The Death Penalty is a great rehabilitation tool. It will guarantee the perp will never harm anyone again. Put ME on the jury.

    So how much of his sentence was shaved off, ie how early was he paroled so he could continue living his life the only way he knew how. This is a d amn shame. A child is without a mother. How about building less houses and more prisons, and cut the crap about prison overcrowding. As far as I'm concerned, the streets are overcrowded with Parolees.

    How is this a "Democrat" thing? You might want to Google "prison overcrowding" & educate yourself or is lack of knowledge a "republican voter" thing?

    Seriously? It's m Dem thing because the Dems whacked the idea of out of state, contracted prisons for less money than the Dems' pet CCPOA members could provide, and instead decided to just let prisoners out early with some stupid life skills classes to make everything OK.

    And what did the GOP do for us. Costly waste of tax payer dollars on a "War on Drugs" that filled our prisons, Three Strikes that filled our prisons, two major wars at a cost of trillions of dollars & thousands of lives, bank bailout, Illegal Immigrant Amnesty with a promise to secure the border. WOW, now there's a record to vote for. LOL

    If I were you I'd be a lot less upset at an obviousy sarcastic comment aimed at the incompetency of the judicial system, rather than the stooges that insist on turning this into some kind of a dems vs. repub argument. It's never a good thing when someone dies, but sarcasm is something you should learn to recognize... and no, sarcasm does not have to be aimed at the "victims".
